HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Guards Kevin Holland and Bilal Abdur-Rahim each scored a game-high 16 points as the University of Southern Mississippi defeated William Carey University 79-60 Monday night at Green Coliseum in a men ’s basketball exhibition game.

Holland, a red-shirt sophomore, went 3-of-6 from beyond the 3-point line and dished out a game-high six assists.

Forward Quinton Campbell posted a double-double for USM with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Cortez Edwards came off the bench for 12 points and four assists.

The Golden Eagles led 38-25 at halftime, as its cross-city, NAIA opponent struggled to find its shooting touch. William Carey shot only 25 percent (8 of 32) in the first half.

Southern Miss out-rebounded Carey 46 to 36 and outscored the Crusaders 42-28 down low near the basket.

 Carey guard Jaylen Moore led Carey with 15 points, while forward Terrance Mujahid finished with 10 points and seven rebounds.

The Golden Eagles officially open the season at 7 p.m. Friday when they welcome Tougaloo College to Green Coliseum.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.
